Autoloc adds the convenience of “one touch” windows to any vehicle. Fully compatible with any domestic, import, or after-market power window system. Simply tap the switch once and the window with travel all the way up or down.
The system usually consists of a two-way control switch wired by two circuits to a motor in each door. One switch position and circuit drive the motor one way to wind the window up; the other switch position and circuit wind the window down. The switch is wired to the battery the vehicles electrical system.
Thus, the control button of the power window need not be kept pressed all the time in order to fully open the window or to close it; instead the switch is pressed past the first stop as far as the end stop. As a result, the window opens or closes completely with one press (One Touch).
If only one window stops working, the problem could be a bad relay, fuse issue, bad motor, or the power window switch has failed. The most common reason for one window to stop working is the switch, so this should be looked at by a professional mechanic to have your power window switch replaced.
Do power windows work when the car is off? You do need power in order to operate power windows. Your car either needs to be running or you need to turn the car`s power on (usually called “accessories” mode).
There are a multitude of reasons why your car window might not roll up, including: The fuses are blown, preventing the electrical controls handling the window from working. The child safety lock is engaged by accident. The window switch is functioning correctly, but the window motor has malfunctioned.
If your vehicle is equipped with a Remote Start System, the 2X button will allow you to start your vehicle before you get in.

Having a problem with the passenger side window switch; the window will go down but not back up
ANSWER : Hi there, this issue generally comes up often when we see a power window that does not work on the passenger switch, but still works with the driver’s master switch. It means that the passenger side window switch has failed. The fact that the drivers switch operates the window properly lets you know that the window components all function properly as that the problem is probably electrical.

A technician that is diagnosing this would use the wiring diagram to find the proper wires to test and check for power when the window is rolled up to see if there is power present when the window is commanded to roll down with the switch. Given that you are still under warranty, this scenario should be something the dealership would resolve free of charge as part of the warranty. If the vehicle is only under powertrain warranty and not the full warranty, the technicians at YourMechanic are able to provide diagnosis for your window and can perform a power window switch replacement for you if necessary.

The rear window automatically comes down after closing it using the second stage on the switch.
ANSWER : Try this procedure for resetting the windows: with all the car windows fully closed, enter the car and put the key in the switch. Turn the key to the on position, but do not start the car. Lower the driver’s window fully using the first position of the switch. When the window reaches the bottom, push the switch the rest of the way down to the second position and hold it there for ten seconds.

Then, raise the window fully using the first position and, when the window reaches the top, press the switch the rest of the way to the second position and hold it there for ten seconds. Repeat this procedure for all the other windows from the driver’s control, next doing passenger’s front, then passenger’s rear, and then driver’s rear. Then, turn off the key and remove it. The next time you turn the car on, the windows should work correctly.

If not, then I recommend having a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come to your location to inspect the windows for you.

After replacing the window regulator, and using the same motor, the window doesn’t go all the way down.
ANSWER : Hey there. There is a safety limit switch that is built into the motor. You may have to check the window track or inside the door for something blocking the window regulator from going all the way down. You may also have to try to push down on the window when lowering it since the motor will kick out when using the auto-down feature. You may need to replace the motor also. If you are still having problems with the vehicle, I recommend having a qualified expert inspect the windows for you in order to have this corrected.

Driver’s side windows do not properly function
ANSWER : If removing the driver door window switch (or the driver-side console switch), and applying direct power to the harness yields successful operation of the window, the problem is the switch that was removed for the test. This can be confirmed utilizing a voltmeter/multimeter, and following the "power path" from the fuse, to the switch, to the output side of the switch (harness plug side of the switch), etc. A YourMechanic technician can assist with the diagnosis of your window issue and help you fix it accordingly.

Power window on driver side goes down when car placed in reverse or drive without touching power window buttons.
ANSWER : Hi there. The only thing that would cause this is an electrical short, caused perhaps by an exposed wire in the power window module, which is located in the center console of your Ford Explorer. The best advice we could offer would be to have a professional mobile mechanic come to your location to complete an electrical problems inspection to try and isolate the source of this issue.

My RPassenger window did not work. I had it fixed. shortly after neither of my rear windows will work from the or the front and
ANSWER : Hi there. Usually when both window switches do not work it is due to an electrical fault with the primary control module. There is a center module that relays all electricity from switches to individual window drive motors to open and close. When more than one switch doesn’t appear to be working, it typically due to an issue with that center window control module or electrical relay powering the system. It would be a good idea to have a professional mechanic come to your location and complete a window not working inspection to determine precisely what is causing this issue before attempting any further repairs.

I just replaced the front passenger window regulator and motor and it works but only when i am using the rear passenger switch
ANSWER : Your Audi uses a window control module to operate the windows. The switches send a command to the module, and the module sends the power to the window motors. I’ve seen the modules do some screwy things, especially when the battery voltage gets low, but I wouldn’t run out and buy a module just yet. It may be possible to communicate with it with the right software and there might be some re-set that can be done. If you contact Your Mechanic, they can send a technician to your home or office to check out your spooky windows and tell you whether you need a new module or something else.
